BlackBerry Bold Too Hot To Handle In Japan

Research In Motion has a bit of a PR mess on its hands after news broke that Japanese Telco DoCoMo was pulling the BlackBerry Bold off the shelves due to an overheating problem:

DoCoMo said it has sold about 4,000 high-end Bold phones, and about 30 users have complained the phone’s keyboard area had heated up. The company said it has received no reports of users getting burned or of phones catching on fire.

RIM claims that this issue is restricted to these particular BlackBerries. But in the interest of science, please leave a comment if you’ve experienced anything that’s similar to what is described above.
